Twist & Pin
It’s quite possibly the simplest way to achieve an elegant and classic look at work. To keep the hair off your face, simply part your hair down the side, grab a small piece, twist, secure with a bobby pin, and you’re done.
Hair Trends for a Night Out
Put a Feather In It
While there are many versions of this fall fashion trend, try pairing a smaller feather with a classic up do for a fancy dinner or a night out dancing.
Head wraps are back in full force this season. Enjoy the updated look by selecting one in a shimmery metallic with rhinestones that’s just perfect for a night out with friends. If you’re a woman of color, try wrapping your hair ala Nina Simone in traditional wax print cloth.
The Messy Bun
This hairstyle is similar to the messy ponytail, but more appropriate for the evening. For a dramatic look, part your hair down the middle to create the bun, rather than pulling all of your hair back.
Wig it Up
Wigs are the easiest way to get the hair you want, without the drama of having to actually go to the salon. Look for lace cap wigs that give you a realistic hairline or if you want to use your own hair, opt for a removable “half weave” that easily mixes with your natural hair.
